Since today was officialy the first day Universities were allowed to hit the road to recruit, the Gators staff was very busy. Coach Hughes, took a trip up to Alabama to check on Wide Receiver Henry Ruggs, one of the higher priority receivers Florida has left on their board.
Hughes, who is also from Alabama, knows Ruggs very well and explained to Ruggs how he has a shot at early playing time if he comes in and works hard.
The Gators are also aware that Ruggs is a great basketball player, letting Ruggs know that their is also opportunity for him to play with the Rowdy Reptiles if he wants.
Ruggs who previously had the Gators written off, now says they are a contender and plans to make a visit to Gainesville this month.
We do know that the Gators could sure use his talents.
